More than a thousand people have been detained by Syria’s authorities and on Saturday, April 9, Khaled Sid-Mohand, a French-Algerian journalist and occasional contributor to FSRN was arrested at his home in Damascus where he’s been based as a reporter and documentary maker for two years. He’s still in custody. For the latest on his situation we’re joined by one of his best friends, Jérôme Anconina, who together with Khaled’s Aunt and other family and friends has set up a support group to try and get him released. Jerome is in Paris. If you like, you can add your name to an online petition calling on the Syrian authorities to release Khaled.
For updated information on Khaled’s situation go to the website set up by his supporters. It’s in French but there are plans to add updates in English soon.
